But the problem is it's not just that black and white issue - it's not just people taking the time to put in spoiler code. We're talking about the whole history of Trek Lit. Say there's a thread about Scotty's lovelife and I want to make an off-hand reference to Mira Romaine, do I also have to stop and figure out if that's a spoiler for Memory Prime
, a novel I haven't read in years?
I just don't think it's just feasible to ask people to make that sort of a judgement while in the middle of a discussion.
